I'm not a very good cook... My family nicknamed me Ellie May when I was a kid. My mom tried to teach me how to cook, but I had little patience to learn. The only way she could teach me anything was to find quick and easy recipes for me, like this one. I have since used this simple recipe to teach my son how to can and will be using it this weekend to teach my nieces. It's fast and easy and produces wonderful results making it the perfect first canning lesson.
